Wenn dich Unglück tut greifen an, BWV1104

composer
Neumeister manuscript

 
This prelude is harmonically ambiguous, a modal setting, with the key unclear at the start, yet full of rhythmic and harmonic interest. Each phrase of the chorale is treated consecutively, with each successive phrase providing material for the lower three parts of counterpoint. The affect is melancholic, reflecting the text of the chorale: the faithfulness of God toward the troubled and suffering believer.
